It's also important that the stuff is *simple*. I personally don't like git because it's too complicated (I prefer hg or svn for software where I can decide which revision control system is used).
Git is just as simple as hg or svn for the majority of things done with it. You don't have to use the crazy branch stuff if you don't want to, just use it exactly like svn or cvs.
There are some very good tutorials on using git just like this if you are curious.
I'm more interested in the software itself than managing the software. Yes, for the kernel where 1000 people contribute such complicated tools are necessary, but not for simple projects where 5 people work on something.
Using git on projects with just 1 person is not a problem, it doesn't require complicated workflow patterns, but it can support it if you so desire.
So don't blame the tool here for the fact that some people use it in wierd ways, blame the user :)
